Travels with Susie

November 29, 2007

The main reason I’m heading home is because my Dad is receiving an award from the Indiana Historical Society for his recent book, Travels with Susie (available at Amazon).

It’s a great book and I’m really excited that he was recognized for his work. If you’re ever sitting in your cube at work, wondering if you have what it takes to write a book, he is proof that it’s possible.


In from one trip and out for another

November 29, 2007

Thanksgiving was great. The house we stayed in was one of the coolest places I’ve ever had the fortune to hang in. The view (as you can see) was amazing.

But now, it’s back to the road as I head home to Indiana for a few days. I don’t imagine I’ll be blogging much so until then, au revoir.


Online Time Wasting

Another place to lose a few hours.

It’s a website that let’s you view the demographics of your zip code and then compare it with others.


Turkey Day!

November 21, 2007

No posting for a couple of days as we’re heading west towards the Hood Canal for a Thanksgiving extravaganza.

We got a house full of people, a turkey to fry and all of the fixings.  My brother and a friend of ours from High School are in the air, winging their way towards Seattle as I type.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Some great photos from German artist Jan Von Holleben.

The flying Superman kid, the bikes and swinging through the jungle are my favorites.

Quote from an AP story about the recent deaths of Norman Mailer, William Styron, and Kurt Vonnegut.

“Vonnegut was the American Mark Twain. He even looked liked him. Everybody loved Vonnegut, whereas Norman was a much more controversial figure,” says J. Michael Lennon, the literary executor for Mailer, who died Nov. 10 at age 84.”

I realize he was from Missouri but still, wasn’t Mark Twain, America’s Mark Twain?

Actually, if this guy is Vonnegut’s Agent, he’s probably chuckling to himself that they actually published his quote.


The Writers Strike

If you were wondering why the Television Writers are on strike, here’s the argument from their side.
